Computer electron densities and conductivities are reported for a typical seeded coal combustion mixture. Results are compared with those for a clean fuel gas produced from the same coal, from which the ash, sulfur, and chlorine have been excluded. The radical oh appears to be the most important electron acceptor in clean systems. For direct coal firing however, one should consider the ions alo2-, bo2-, cl-, po2-, and so2-, all of which have noticeable (order of 1 percent or more) effects on electron density.
